The plan was to take over a building for occupation, but the cops arrived en force and spent the day pushing and herding the crowd all over the city. (The objective was the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center). In the end, as many as 300 protesters were surrounded, many arrested as police encountered spotty violence in the form of tossed bottles and rocks.
